Fridge Magnet Souvenirs 

A personalized Christmas ornament magnet is a winning idea that will please anyone. Personalized beach, vacation, and travel ornaments transformed into a magnet are great gifts because you can place them anywhere that attracts metal: home, the office, school, etc.

You can pick from beach Christmas ornaments, traveler ornaments to popular destinations such as New York or Italy, or even low-key places like camping. With a little creativity, you can transform a personalized ornament into an awesome magnet that can be displayed at home or work.

All you have to do is simply remove the hanging ribbon and adhere magnetic tape from any local craft store to the back of the ornament, and there you have it, a keepsake that will be treasured for many years to come! Here are some recommended styles from Holiday Traditions:
